The wine has a bright ruby rim, with rich burgundy hues and a youthful, serious nose of crushed strawberries and bramble with bass notes of olive and leather. The palate is late summer in California, sunny and dry, with concentrated dried fruit. The finish is clean and ends with raspberry and rhubarb. The wine showcases the synergy of the diverse terroirs that make up Northern California while still remaining accessible enough to be a daily drinker.
